Melodifestivalen 2018: Which Semi-Final 3 act are you most excited for?


Välkommen till Malmö! This week Melodifestivalen 2018 rolls into Sweden’s third largest city for the third semi-final of the competition.

Seven more acts will take to the stage in Malmö, hoping to secure one of two spots up for grabs at this year’s final in Stockholm. Failing that, there’s the two passes to duel it out against Sigrid Bernson, Renaida, Margaret and Mimi Werner at Andra Chansen in two weeks time. The three remaining unfortunate acts will progress no further than the stage in Malmö Arena.

Swedish Idol winner Martin Almgren will open the show with “A Bitter Lullaby”, followed by R&B singer Barbi Escobar singing “Stark”. Up third is rapper Moncho, with “Cuba Libre”.

Jessica Andersson returns to Melodifestivalen to perform fourth and make her “Party Voice” heard. Dynamic duo Kalle Moraeus & Orsa Spelmän are on fifth and Dotter, who co-wrote Mariette’s entry “A Million Years” last year is sixth. Closing the show is two-time Melfest competitor Mendéz, whose song “Everyday” is co-written by another Melfest alum. Jimmy Jansson.
